Collaborative Cottage Grove's Community-Centered Health program is committed to the transformation of health, equitable community development, and inclusion of cultural diversity. The partners are leaders in changing housing systems to align health and housing. Cottage Grove aims to foster healthy, resident-led communities by integrating community empowerment with environmental changes and high-quality, onsite, primary and behavioral health care. These efforts will ultimately create a positive and measurable impact on hospital emergency visits and health disparities in the community.
In 2012 the city won a grant for Global Green to provide a consultation about sustainable neighborhoods, which conducted community meetings focusing on improving walk ability in Cottage Grove. Four organizations: Greensboro Housing Coalition, Mustard Seed Community Health, New Hope Community Development Group and Cottage Grove Initiative applied and was chosen to be the recipient of the grant. The Collaborative Cottage Grove partnership has broadened its reach since its inception to better serve the community and we always welcome new committed partners that could enhance the work and help move this community-centered initiative further along to create effective and sustainable change within the community.
